I keep getting the above error when trying to flash with the factory.bin file. I can browse the file no problem, but can't get past the above when I hit "Upgrade." I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 and using Firefox to connect to the router.
Not sure if I'm missing something obvious. Any help appreciated.

Thanks for the reply and info. Will read. Soz about the signing.
Ok. Tried again in windows, using different browsers. Same message each time. I am wondering if I should upgrade the stock firmware before trying again?
Have you tried shortening the name of the factory.bin file?
I have not. What would you suggest?
Edit to add: it seems to have accepted the TP Link upgrade without a problem.
If the web interface tells you 'Please choose a file to upgrade', just rename the file to something shorter like
Thank you! Will give that a go.
Done! My thanks to you. I also picked a great day to do this--my internet service has been an absolute pain flickering in and out.
